For our friend Jess’s birthday, we called upon my brother’s incredible culinary talents to cook up a Spring feast in her NYC apartment. The space was tiny, but he came up with some pretty amazing stuff. It was the first weekend in May, so the spring veggies were insanely ripe. Here are some pics from the day…
The necessities: Prosecco, butter, and of course…
CHEESE (in this case, creamy Taleggio)
day cheese plate can ever be complete without prosciutto (and fig jam).
Fiddleheads are the coolest.
Best cheese of the day — gorgonzola crema dulce
Morel mushrooms — also the coolest
Just one more of the chz
Pork fat works better than pot covers
Apparently these are called ‘French breakfast’ radishes
Ricotta toasts with ramps, fiddleheads and morels
Lobster roll with bacon and tomatoes
French breakfast radishes glazed with butter
And for the grand finale…
Pork cassoulet with soft boiled eggs
Yet another awesome day thanks to Tom. You da man bro.
